    Got home late from an out of town gymnastics meet. Clicked on the boob tube and found the Thunder/Jazz game, at the 7:30 mark of the 4th quarter.

    Burks was playing, but still doesn't look really involved in the offense. He was playing the wing, typically off-side, and seemed to be more of a decoy.


    One sequence was absolute gold. Perkins caught a pass about under the basket, went up for a lay in, and was blocked from behind by Alec. The Thunder regained control and a player made a pass to the right wing, but Burks intercepted it and took off on a break away, only to have his lay up blocked from behind by Ibaka.

    The whole sequence outta be on espin :lol:

    Admittedly don't get many Jazz games here and don't follow that organization closely, but looks like his minutes have gone way down this year. Getting extremely minimal time... Not a good sign.

    He's been terrible this year, no surprise he hasn't gotten much PT.

    Another "left too early" mistake?

    Nah, he left at the right time. He was a lottery pick, and when you're a lottery pick, you have to go pro. Utah tried to play at PG this year, and that was a disaster. Just can't find the PT with guys like Williams, Hayward, Foye, Tinsley, (even Earl Watson) above him.

    Yep. I seem to be as hesitant as they come on this board in terms of when I think our guys should go pro (I try to judge it as non-selfishly as possible) but given the realities of how absurdly favorable that draft was (it was downright weak, to be frank) and that Alec was assured of being a lottery pick....you have to make the leap in that situation.

    Thought I read he is available for trade. Maybe a change of scenery will help. Hang in there Alec.
